George Michael. A Cowboy and an Angel

Although George Michael was seen as a poised, clever sex symbol, he had strong principles. He firmly believed in giving what he got. In April 2014, he told fans he’d been watching his 2011 tour video: “I saw the luckiest man on earth. So much love given to one man,” he wrote. “…I love you.”

2017 and the echoes of 1933

We live in interesting times, as the saying goes. Anyone paying attention to the on-going parade of changing world events in 2016 will be wondering “what next?” What in heaven’s name is coming up in 2017? More change? Less upheaval? More of the same but at another turn of the spiral? Here’s the chart for

Marcel Proust. Remembrance of Things Planetary

The upside down Kite figure in the chart looks more like a sailing ship with the Saturn/North Node opposition forming its mast. The Small Talent Triangle is the ship and the Large Talent Triangle the sails. But the inner resources from all the blue aspects didn’t make writing plain sailing for Marcel Proust, one of

Dreams and Age Progression Research

I have been enthusiastic about aspect pattern astrology but what really struck me was the relationship between the Age Point Progression and developmental crises and opportunities and their correlation with dreams. In my book Dreams and Astrological Psychology I highlighted the fact that at certain points I had significant dreams that corresponded with the Age

Good leaders are scarce, so I’m following my Self*

There’s an insidious creeping nastiness in the air following the result of the US election. You could argue that it was there before, as a dominant feature throughout the presidential campaign. Now we know the result we (i.e. the world) have to get on with it, protests or not, intentions to leave the country or

Her book Fish Can’t Climb Trees is her most recent exposition of this model. Its title, taken

The Tyranny of Aesthetics

I never knew, in my twenties, why I felt compelled to move from one flat to another, seldom staying anywhere longer than six months. Six months of fixity seemed to be all I could handle. I’d paint the walls, lengthen or shorten the curtains I had used in the previous flat, adding a frill or

Talking about it informally will (in my experience) certainly arouse interest and possibly a

In all of us the ego will experience itself in three different modes, on three levels, in the threefold personality structure. We have a physical, corporeal self, an emotional, feeling self, and a

Confessions of an American Huber Astrological Psychologist

The transcendent planetary influences of Uranus and Pluto can have a collective effect on us , pushing the archetypal energies they represent, clashing like ignorant armies in the night. They are square in Capricorn and Aries; challenging our basic needs for action on the national stage as we look to politicians who like the rest
